ANNIES WAR: A NURSES SECOND WORLD WAR DIARY AND RECOLLECTIONS

Sarah Annie Jackson was born in 1905 near Whitby, UK. She died in 1998 in very different times. Annie trained to be a nurse and rose through the ranks until she retired in 1965 as Matron of the Royal Infirmary in Liverpool.In World War II, she volunteered to serve with the Territorial Army Nursing Corps and served first in France, until that country was overrun by the German army; followed by two years in England attending London bombing casualties; and then from 1942 - 45, was attached to the British 8th Army in North Africa and Italy. This is her diary and speaking notes from a talk she gave later. I hope you find it as interesting. I do.
